Alpine Winter & Summer Camps

CVA Winter Camps are for alpine athletes looking to gain extra time on snow, train on world class courses and experience life at Carrabassett Valley Academy and its facilities. The camps offer drills, gate training, video analysis, school work monitoring and much more.  We typically offer long weekend and week-long day and boarding camps throughout the winter.

Summer Camps include a variety of camps including Mammoth, Mt. Hood, France and others. A great way to improve your skills and have fun over the summer.

Custom Camps: If you'd like to bring your group to Sugarloaf to work with our coaches, we'd be happy to talk with you about creating a custom camp.  Contact Erin Whipple at for more information.

Summer camps for alpine racers

Recently held at CVA in July: Big Dog Development Camp in Carrabassett Valley, Maine
Skiers & snowboarders had their choice of developing individual goals on the trampolines, in the skatepark, in the weight room or in the gym while enjoying a fun and supportive team environment with CVA’s world-class coaches. Over the four days, campers improved their strength, power, agility, endurance, balance and overall athleticism, the keys to long-term sporting success.  
Mornings were dedicated to skill development within a customized focus, and afternoons were spent exploring and playing in the area around Carrabassett Valley.  Afternoon activities included swimming, biking, hiking and field games including soccer, kick ball and disc golf.

Recently held at Big Snow Indoor Slalom Park in New Jersey July 6-8
U14 Alpine athletes took their on-snow training indoors - yes indoors - during a recent summer session at Big Snow American Dream.  This facility is North America’s first and only indoor, real-snow, year-round ski and snow resort.
The focus of the 3-day session was to improve athletes timing of a slalom pole touch and develop the balance needed to make carved 1 ski turns. Due to the layout of the park, athletes were able to spend lots of time on-task on consistent snow surfaces, making about 20 runs in a 2 hour session, resulting in tremendous progress.  
When they weren’t in the snow park, coaches brought athletes outside for Rollerblade training and conditioning drills.  They also enjoyed the spectacle of the incredible American Dream complex.

Upcoming: Laangraff, Holland in August 
This trip will be for U16/19 athletes currently enrolled with the Academy, but may be opened to others if space is available.
